Origin of the Name Hernandez

The Hernandez family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Hernandez is of ancient origin and is derived from the name Fernando. This is a widespread name found not only in Spain and Portugal but also in parts of Italy . Many Hispanic surnames have been in existence since the twelfth century. For centuries it was the custom to give Hispanic children two surnames, one from each parent and unlike other parts of Europe it was the mothers name that was displayed last. Spanish surnames developed from a number of sources including the parents name, from an occupation, from a descriptive name or nickname or from a particular location. Hernandez is aid to mean 'bold voyager' (or 'adventurer') and as such may ultimately be of occupational origin.
The Hernandez coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Hernandez descendants.
